and it's a great day. thank you mayor. [applause] >> so local hire would not be the law of the city if not for the board of supervisors. i want to acknowledge the members that are here today. supervisor eric mar. [applause] -- the architect of our local hire law john avalos. [applause] and our board president david chiu who i would like to say a few words. [applause] >> good morning. on behalf of the board i am very happy to be part of the celebration of this milestone and just want to take a moment for all of us to look around this room. we talk about the diversity of san francisco, but it's not everyday that we come together in the way that we are this morning. i also want to start by thanking the warriors, management and your organization for playing ball with the city for making sure we are setting a standard for how we do privately funded projects and on behalf of the board i want to thank you for that and thank those that have been warriors for this concept to making sure local projects involve local employees. from the community partners and chinese for affirmative actio
there are some who have said that there are already laws in the books that cover this situation. that is simply not the case. which i whies berkeley, san joÉe and other california cities have their own public nudity restriction beyond the if there were already laws in place to address this situation, i would not have introduced this legislation. public nudity, currently, is not -- is legal in san francisco, other than in our parks, port, and in restaurants. there's been a suggestion that we should use lewd behavior laws, particularly the indecent exposure provisions of the california penal code. i don't agree with that. i think that using lewd behavior laws is problematic and ineffective. first of all, there are going to be a lot of borderline cases about whether something is lewd or not lewd and you're putting a police officer in a terrible position of trying to determine is this person a little bit aroused or not aroused, is that adornment on the person's genitals lewd or not lewd, did he shake his genitals a little too vigorously to draw attention. no police officer should make that determi
of requests for information from law enforcement and other groups and the percentage of those requests that actually were granted. so that would also be information that will be shared with other agencies and with the public so that if law enforcement agencies want to gather fotion, gt -- information, that will be shared the number of times that happens over the year. that was something that was a big concern for the mtc so we removed that language and really feel that the mtc has been working well with us and with other stake holders to assure that there are actual new plans in place for how the privacy policy will be implemented and i want to thank the mtc in particular randy renschler, who is here, for your work on that. colleagues, if you have -- if there are comments or questions? i had originally thought that this resolution could go for adoption without committee reference but since we're talking about transparency and privacy policies it makes sense that we bring it to our committee in full disclosure. so let's open this item up for public comment. we do have mr. renschler h
laws because we have violence going on, i don't think that most people would agree with that. of course violence always needs to be top priority and i can tell supervisor campos how many times, in the castro, or in noe valley, we hear from mission station, listen, we have to deal with the violence in the mission, and that's top priority. and my constituents understand that, and they respect that, and i've never heard any of them push back against that. everyone knows dealing with violent crime is a top priority but that doesn't mean you can't deal with something because you want police to deal with violent crime. before the introduction of this legislation, like i said this is legislation, like i said this is going on'l people who the minute it started and we weighe waited two years. we tried to resolve this. it was not going to be resolved or moved forward. finally i want to address the issue of free expression. and we are a city of free expression, and it's very important to me and i know to all of us. i don't agree that having yellow your peenis at a busy street corner as people go b
down and playing cat and mouse games with the board of clerk's office about the sunshine laws pamphlet that's supposed to be in there, because in every other language there is the leaflets. but in english they seem to have a hard time so now they're saying that they're going to redo it but then i said you should take the other ones out of there and redo the whole thing but no i'm playing a cat and mouse thing but i will be back tomorrow to see if they make copies of that because that should be in the office of the board of clerks. also, i wanted to speak on hiv. as you know, the african-american and latino community is the highest, community is the highest, fastest number of new cases of-6 and harm reduction, i'm a product of harm reduction. i believe in harm reduction. it's very good because it made me a better man. i'm a very proud gay black male. so i had a lot of issues around stuff like that. so but i think we need to really, really focus on hep c because it's good to know about how to be safe,; j,v while havig rgetworld, whatever a person des they want to be in. but we have to st

. fiscal feasibility is required by law when a project is on city-owned property, construction costs over $25 million and pre-development costs of over a million. the determination must be completed before environmental review can commence. it is a relatively recent law. we have not done physical feasibility on all but we have done reviews of the explore tor yum, america's cup and san francisco wholesale produce mart. i would like to invite rick welts up to talk about this project. it seems a little bit -- doesn't seem to give enough context as we talk about fiscal feasibility for a project that you haven't seen or heard the description or seen or heard this opportunity. we will be having a full design and transportation presentation in board of supervisors land use committee next monday but i wanted to give warrior's president rick well ts a couple minutes to talk about the vision for this arena. i want to yield to him. >> thank you, jennifer. supervisors. i am going to take a couple minutes to do an overview of the project design that has been released to date, the image you are seing i

[speaker not understood]. all this does is waste more time and money. so, let's get on with it. >> thank you. next speaker. >>> my name is victor car michael and i live in pacifica, california. my position is it makes no sense at all to merge these two studies. they are completely different entities. the sharp park redevelopment should be separated for two specific reasons. one is the golf course within the sharp park area is located right on top of a [speaker not understood] area. that complicates the e-i-r a
to agree to our local harboring laws that typically only adhere to public projects. it is an incredible opportunity. we want jobs for our locals and see this as being an enhance to that. i don't think anybody denis that. i don't think that has to be site specific. that is a concern of the neighbors. a project this ambitious deserves a deliberate project so i appreciate we delay this over the holidays to make sure residents have a time to think and be engaged. i think this is being prioritized by the city but i would like to have that balance as much as we can. given the warrior's time line with lease expiration in oakland but also understanding a lot of hesitation and concerns i think our residents are asking. i do really want to commend the residents of our neighborhood for being incredibly incredible and respectable and reasonable. i think it's been outstanding. the level to which our residents have beening a gaouing to participate in the discussion versus outright saying we are against the project, we will not participate and oppose at all costs. i think that speaks to the level of r

, and as a matter of law, in san francisco, 120 toñjp 150% of area median income is middle class. so why on earth would anyone would try to strip out the reference to that income range6 as being middle class is something that i don't really understand. i also do not think that the mayor's office of housing has indicated that 120 to 150% of ami is upper middle income housing. when i did a hearing earlier this year about middle class housing there was a particular mayor's office office of housing, as upper income housing. they did not do that and its presentation never indicated that, and to do that would have been i think inaccurate. colleagues it is clear that 120 to 150% of ami is middle income housing we should not be string this out and send that terrible message to the people of san francisco. >> president chiu: supervisor olague -- and before you respond, supervisor olague, our clerk wanted to clarify that the additional language of or other available data you will make that amendment to all references where it refers to data on households earning approximately 120 to 150%. >> supervisor ol
